Today I had an appointment with my perinatologist to check up on the babies! I love these appointments because I get to see them squiggle all over the screen! We looked at the kidneys, hearts, bladder, flow of blood in the cord, placenta, amniotic fluid, arms, legs and much more! This time our baby boy was head down and facing straight up. We were able to get one okay picture of him (kind of reminds me of his dad who hates taking pictures). The baby girl was breech and we got tons of great pictures of her! These babies have really grown over the last 4 weeks. They have more fat on their bodies and the pictures really show it! Baby Girl weighs 2 lbs 1 oz and Baby Boy weighs 2 lbs 7 oz. Everything is looking good and I have had no contractions except for the Braxton Hicks. After the appointment my stomach was strapped to the heart rate monitors for 40 mins so they could monitor the babies hearts and check for any contractions. My doctor said everything looked perfect but he wants to see me every week now to check the heart rates, contractions, and the babies weights.
This was me minus the HUGE machine and hospital bed.
Here are some pictures!
Baby Girl is on the left and Baby Boy is on the right!
These three pictures are of the Baby Girl. She sure has fattened up! I love her already!
I feel so blessed to have made it this far without any complications. I hope this continues. I also feel so blessed for being given two children. I know it will be tough and it will get overwhelming but this is what I wanted! I prayed so hard to get pregnant after our miscarriage in July of 2009. I know the Lord hears our prayers and gives us what we can handle at the exact moment that He feels is right for us.
